I am not sure what actually happens, is no _tkinter built at all or does
it build, but against the wrong of multiple installed Tk versions?
Then, have you checked that all necessary Tcl/Tk headers are installed?
If yes, maybe before compiling Python calling
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
(or where ever your Tk-8.5 install resides of course) may help. If not,
then please give us more information about your system, installed library
versions, error messages while compiling and so on.
